Yesterday (thursday) the Dutch pro-soccer referees came together, because competition will start next weekend. They were ORDERED to get rid off all jewelry, INCL. rubber wristbands (such as LiveStrong).
I can imagine in all kinds of sport and in any league the UIC can/will/must give some points of notice for the next season. In the Neth.'s we do so for several years now. IMHO we should get rid off it now, but why not start taking action at the beginning of a competition? In that case all players can take notice off it and are warned in advance. When we take action during competition, you can have the argument: "Last weekend we could wear them. Why not now?" or things like that...

Ik ben niet gek, doe alleen alsof! Gaat me goed af toch?
